It’s now official.
On Monday, the two sides agreed to a two-year, $86 million deal.
The deal also includes a vesting option for the 2025 season.
The Mets moved swiftly to replace Jacob deGrom and found their man.
On Twitter, Verlander changed his profile picture, coloring over his Houston Astros gear with Mets Orange and Blue and tweeting it out to his fans.

The veteran ace has always had a great sense of humor.
Once again, that humor was on full display yesterday as the right-hander made a hilarious change to his profile picture.
That’s one way for him to endear himself to the fans in New York.
He already has an impressive resume that precedes him, including an 18-4 season in 2022 in which he posted an MLB-best 1.75 ERA in 28 starts.
So while his pedigree precedes him, so too does his sense of humor.
Though it may be obvious that Verlander added the Mets colors in himself, he looks pretty good in his new threads.
Mets fans will certainly like the look of Verlander in his new uniform.
Mets fans will like it even better that Verlander shares a rotation with Scherzer, creating a deadly one-two punch at the top.
The Mets won 101 games with Scherzer, Chris Bassitt, and deGrom.
With Verlander in the fold, the Mets look prepared for more dominance.NEXT: 2 Areas Of Need The Mets Still Need To Fill
